    Explosions reported near finish line at Boston Marathon [W:162, 896, 911]]Alright, this is a big story that's getting a lot of attention now so let me make this clear for the sake of the thread.

    Moving forward at this time, this thread is for discussing the event that is occuring. SPECIFICALLY discussing the event that is occuring.

    Anyone attempting to use this event to make political points about ANY other issue that isn't EXTREMELY related DIRECTLY to this event will be thread banned. Similarly, anyone derailing the thread by spending entire posts griping about what other people say, without actually discussing the story, will be thread banned.

    Situations like this get everyone on edge and it's understandable. But lets keep this thread focused ON TOPIC. If you want to rant about someones reaction, you have the basement. If you want to make tangental political points, start a thread in a different section.

    Bombing marathon runners? If so, how pathetic. Perhaps the target was Kenyan civilians.
